Screen Resolution

Adoptintl.com is optimized for viewing at a screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher.  It will render best in your computer monitor's native resolution which may be 1280x1024 or even higher with larger monitors and modern notebook computers.  Checking and adjusting your monitor's resolution is really easy on a Windows PC, or a Mac.  Just follow the appropriate directions below:

Windows: Right-click in any empty area of your desktop screen and select "Properties" from the menu. A window similar to the one below will appear. Do you see the "Settings" tab at the top? Click it. Under the section titled "Screen Area" or "Screen Resolution", move the slider to the right until it reads 1024x768 or higher. You may also want to adjust the "Color Quality" drop-menu to read "Highest (32 bit)". To finish, click "Apply", then "Okay" to close the window.

Windows screen resolution

Mac: To change the resolution on an Apple® Macintosh system, click the "Apple Menu" and select "Control Panels". Open "Monitors & Sound".  A window similar to the image below should appear. Select the "Monitor" icon then scroll down to select the 1024x768 setting. Close the box to apply.
